Juventus see off Milan to reach last four

Juventus moved into the Coppa Italia semi-finals after they defeated AC Milan 2-1 in Wednesday's quarter-final clash at Juventus Stadium in Turin.

It was Juventus who started strongly and the pressure paid off when Paulo Dybala fired home into the top corner in the 10th minute following a Juan Cuadrado's searching cross from the left.

There was only one team in the game and it came as no surprise when Miralem Pjanic fired home a sublime free kick in the 21st minute after Kwadwo Asamoah had been brought down on the edge of the box.

After the break, Carlos Bacca hit the back of the net against the run of play when he turned brilliantly in the box to volley home Milan's only goal in the 53rd minute.

Moments later Manuel Locatelli saw red for a second yellow card for a bad foul on Dybala. Mario Mandzukic had a great chance to score in the 61st minute but he put his header wide for the home side.

Gerard Deulofeu tested Neto soon after but his strike went straight at the keeper. The visitors pressed in the final stages but Juventus held firm to advance to the last four.
